Strike was directed in 1925 by Sergai Eisenstein. It was Esienstein's first feature film and an indicator of the brilliant films t follow. As with other Communist films of this period, the workers in general are the heroes. The composition and editing are spectacular, particularly with the scenes as the troop raid the apartment buildings, and the conclusion where the killing of the workers is intercut with the slaughter of cattle.

Not public domain?
Love this film and would like more people to see it, so I was trying to stream it on YouTube for public viewing, but according to YouTube, neither the audio or visual are in the public domain. Actually, according to YouTube, very little of what the Internet Archive says is in the public domain actually is.
